In addition to our tax days held at the Northwest Bronx Resource Center at Refuge House, UNHP takes our free tax prep program on the road to accommodate Bronx seniors living in local partner senior housing developments. The senior or HUD 202 Housing offers affordable, independent-living rental units for low income senior citizens. UNHP partners with Rose Hill Apartments, Serviam Gardens, Edison Arms and
Msgr. Fiorentino Apartments.
Our first senior mobile day was held at Serviam Gardens, developed by Fordham Bedford Housing Corporation (FBHC) on the sprawling and lush grounds of the Mt. St. Ursula Campus, a convent and Catholic girl’s high school. FBHC, the largest community sponsored housing corporation in New York City, manages Serviam Gardens and provides homes and social services to 286 low-income seniors. In addition to using state of the art green technology and energy conservation measures in the construction and ongoing maintenance, Serviam Gardens also offers a movie theater, computer lab, exercise room, community spaces, a rooftop garden, and a wellness center. UNHP was able to assist 50 seniors in filing their taxes at Serviam on February 12, 2014. Below are some of the great people we met:
